you, my friend. thank you for stays with us. whatever post election lull we could count on, the lull has been cancelled this year. new reporting tonight about the scandal that has forced general petraeus out of government, out as head of the cia, and there are a ton of questions. and even though president obama's reelection was settled at about 11:15 p.m. eastern last tuesday, the election overall is still underway in some parts of the country, including one place where it appears to have mostly just broken down with a bunch of federal level races still undecided. and the state in question is not florida for once. important updates coming up there including what may be a deconcession by a democrat who previously thought he had lost in a big important u.s. senate race. that's all ahead. >>> but we have to begin with breaking news out of washington. "the washington post" is reporting tonight that president obama is considering massachusetts senator john kerry as his new secretary of defense. that's right, defense. putting the decorated veteran and former presidential candidate in charg
was real. though the timing is perhaps, perhaps suspect. one week ago. six days before the u.s. election. national security correspondent jennifer griffin is following this breaking story from the pentagon. >> reporter: at 4:50 a.m. november 1, days before the u.s. presidential election, two iranian su-25 frog foot fighter jets like these intercepted and fired twice upon an unmanned, unarmed u.s. m-2-1 predator drone over the persian gulf. it's the first time the iranians ever fired on a u.s. drone. the shots missed on both attempted. iran's fighter pilots briefly pursued the drone that landed safely at an undisclosed location. >> incident occurred over international waters. 16 nautical miles off the coastline. aircraft was never in iranian air space. it was always flying in international air space. the internationally recognized territorial limit is 12 nautical miles off the coast. we never entered the 12 nautical mile limit. >> asked whether the incident was an act of war, the pentagon spokesman said he would not legally label it. adding the state department had protested through the s
guy who really masterminded so much of what we did in this election. he did such a great job as campaign manager, and he will go into more granular detail in what he saw as the results on tuesday. here is jim messina. >> hello, everyone, good to be with you. i want to start out by congratulating team romney for a hard-fought campaign. they were hard-working americans who wanted to make the country better and use the political process to do that. we wish them sleep and some time with family. i want to congratulate all the volunteers for what they did on election day. we had over 109,000 people canvassing on doors, double that on the phones, and they executed a historic ground game. the reason they were motivated to do this it was not because of any analytical tools or tech product that we gave them. they were working to build this campaign because they believe in barack obama and his message and the policy he moved forward -- to move this country forward. that is what won in this election. across battleground states, we are currently sitting at 50.4. i think we will get a litt

>>> newly elected president obama is back in washington, automatic spending cuts and tax increases set to go into effect at the beginning of the year, known together as the fiscal cliff. members of one of the most deeply divided congresses in history are sending smoke signals up capitol hill to note they are ready to get back to the bargaining table. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we are ready to be led, not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. >> i want to work together, but i want everyone to also understand, you can't push us around. we want to work together. >> as washington digs back in, politicians and pundits alike are still post-gaming obama's election night victory. >> as soon as the votes started coming in and we matched them up against the model, we were well convinced that the thing was going to go according to plan. >> republicans in a crisis of their own after mitt romney's disastrous defeat. does the governor's loss and demise signal a greater crossroads for the grand 'ole party? >> i think it's more of a branding problem because the branding proble
with chuck todd." >>> after climbing the re-election mountain, president obama sets his sites on avoiding the fiscal cliff. if h in a few hours he will tell the country how he plans to make that happen but will he find enough allieses on capitol hill to do it? >>> the answer to that question is in the hands of house speaker john boehner who is offering an candid take on tuesday's results. it might be causing more republican hand wringing to opening the door to deal making. >>> and the british are coming. what president obama and prime minister cameron can do together to get the global economy on track and resolve serious situations like syria. >>> good morning from washington. it's friday, november 9th, 2012. this is "the daily rundown" i'm chuck todd. let's get right to my first reads in the morning. at 11:00, in the white house east room the president will speak to the nation for the first time since his election about what he hopes to accomplish before the end of the year. before taking on the new challenges though the president changed his campaign workers this emotional video from we
it the november surprise. in 90 minutes, president obama will hold his first press conference since re-election and he will be holding it amid circumstances no one could have predicted. just one week after america gave him a second term, at a time of high stakes negotiations over the so-called fiscal cliff, the president will likely face questions about a salacious sex scandal involving the now former cia director. >> does the president see this in general as an unwelcomed distraction at a time when he's just -- was re-elected and has a bunch of priorities in terms of the fiscal cliff and in terms of his cabinet? >> well, i certainly i think wouldn't call it welcome. obviously the, as i said to ben, the information about general petraeus came to him as a surprise. >> not exactly welcome is perhaps an understatement. the resignation of general david petraeus as cia director hangs another question mark over america's intelligence community and foreign pollicy leadership. with petraeus out he could tap john owe brennan to take over at the cia. secretary of state hillary clinton has insisted she wi
debate. >> the president was committed -- elected on the basis that he was not romney and romney was a poopy head. >> they're going to defend a bunch of millionaires? >> i was long last week as was virtually every major republican analyst. >> bounce with me. come on, bounce with me a little bit. come on. ♪ >>> bounce with me, indeed. it's the first week after the election, and the big story was supposed to be the looming fiscal cliff. but there's nothing like a high profile sex scandal to distract washington. with headlines dominated today by the abrupt resignation of cia director david petraeus over an extramarital affair. some lawmakers are now calling for an inquiry. we're now learning that high-level officials at the fbi and the justice department were notified in late summer that fbi agents had uncovered the affair that led to petraeus' downfall. it all started in early june when a florida woman named jill kelley pictures here with her husband, petraeus, and his wife, alerted agents to e-mails she described as e-mails. they told kelley, a petraeus family friend, to stop so
a day after his election. good day, i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. let the negotiations begin. house and senate leaders have now staked out their opening positions. now the president will put down his markers. we're only moments from his scheduled first post-election speech at the white house addressing the most urgent crisis of the lame-duck session, the fiscal cliff. without a deal, the congressional budget office now projects that if the tax cuts expire and the budget cuts kick in, unemployment would jump to 9.1% by the end of next year and the nation's economy could slide into another recession. joining me for our daily fix, special panel, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor and managing editor of post politics.com, mark halperin, senior political analyst for "time" and msnbc. >> greg, u.s. economics editor for the economist and "new york times" andrew ross sorkin, co-host of "squawk box" on cnbc. welcome all. first chris cizilla and mark halperin, the political side of this, chris, your reporting so far, we've seen speaker boehner today, what chuck schumer had to say, the pr
was the message of the election. leaders of both parties give us their take on that yesterday. we want to turn to all of you. your vote, your message to washington. we began with the front page of ."sa today, this is what richard wolf writes. the two sites listed no time sticking out their positions on the potential crisis that is 54 days away. this is what the two leaders had to say yesterday. we will start with harry reid and move on to john boehner. [video clip] >> they are tired of partisan gridlock. i have one goal, to be obama. obama was reelected overwhelmingly. republicans want us to work together. democrats want us to work together. they want to reach a balanced approach to everything, but especially the situation we have with the huge deficit. taxes are a part of that. >> the american people have spoken. they have reelected president obama, and every elected a republican majority. if there was a mandate, it is a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges we all face as a nation. my message today is not one of confrontation, but one of conviction.
the election is behind us, and it's time to confront the fiscal cliff, or as we at "the cycle" call it until we invent poetic phrasing, the gradual fiscal slope. whatever you want to call it, it's staring you in the face. two hours ago the president flanked by middle class taxpayers said this in the white house east room. >> the american people voted for action, not politics as usual. our job now is to get the majority of congress to reflect the will of the american people. what the american people are looking for is cooperation. they're looking for consensus. they're looking for common sense. most of all, they want action. >> the president has invited congressional leaders to the white house next week to start negotiations. he's made it clear that the election is a message that the people won't compromise. >> i intend to work with both parties to do more. i'm not wedded to every detail of my plan. i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. but, as i've said before, we can't just cut our way to prosperity. if we're serious about reduc

to the president freshly re-elected and now setting the table for negotiations with capitol hill inviting congressional leaders to the white house next week for urgent talks on the fiscal cliff. this is no exaggeration because early next year trillions of dollars in tax increases and automatic spending cuts will come into effect. and so in his first public statement since tuesday's emphatic victory, the president pushed for a deal on tax cuts for the middle class arguing there's no reason for them to be linked to tax cuts for the wealthy. >> let's not wait. even as we're negotiating a broader deficit reduction package, let's extend the middle class tax cuts right now. it would immediately take a huge chunk of the economic uncertainty off the table. >> the president said that his re-election means that voters support what he called a balanced approach to deficit reduction. meaning that historically low rates for higher earners should now expire. >> i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. i am not going to ask students and seniors and middle class families to pay down the entir
of the affair before the election -- one aid of the -- knew of the affair before the election." host: all of this will be our topic later this morning. we will be talking with ronald kessler, an author who has written books about the fbi and the cia. back to our topic, avoiding the fiscal cliff, do you cut entitlement spending? and become a port richey, florida. -- andy, democratic caller, port richey, florida. excuse me, let me move on to nick. caller: every time they talk about these in congress, they will not cut their pay, not cut their staff, will not cut any federal employees, which is exactly what all that money is. immigration, those people are costing the american taxpayers' dollars. host: you say that that is exactly where it is going, the number that folks put out there and that experts are saying is that that is not where it is all at, that that would get you very far. but that the real drivers are these entitlement programs. host: i have a friend who works on c130's. they had an $800 garbage can and they were not allowed to ask if they could take a cut in military pay, becaus
me sad. but there's a bit of me that says, look, we just went through a presidential election and neither candidate said one word about $7 billion a month in afghanistan and 300 or more killed or wounded a month. sometimes i wonder about america's priorities and what we think is important. >> absolutely. you have some people who say this is a distraction from the fiscal cliff debate and a lot of other things. do you believe given what we know now and the answers that must be presented, are there legitimate questions regarding if there was e-mails or classified information? the volume alone that's alleged with general allen, are there legitimate questions that can placed without asking if our priorities are in line? you have to hold people accountable in the armed forces. that's our rule 100% of the time. but again, let me go back to the basics. petraeus is one of the the most talented people we have produced in the country's history. he's been at war for ten years. we needed him as a cia director. i'm sad for him and his family and the country. we have lost him in this manner.
is looking for a move past another election to move past unpopular health care reform and i think he is probably willing to do something on a medicare overhaul that would do something to balance the books to get us further back from the fiscal crisis we're facing head on right now. maybe i'm wrong. that would obviously be the best scenario for both parties to get rid of the fiscal cliff. get us away from a fiscal crisis so both parties can move on to their own agenda, whether immigration, reform, energy reform or education reform, what have you. jon: put that to a vote to our viewers, ideologue or ego-maniac, what do you think? a.b. stoddard from "the hill". jenna: or none of the above. jon: that is possible too. jenna: the man who murdered six people and permanently injured congresswoman gabby giffords is learning his fate today. we'll have an update on the sentencing for arizona shooter jared lee loughner. that image certainly few of you forget. >>> parts of the northeast digging out from up to eight inches of snow as millions there are still recovering from superstorm sandy. a liv

that affect people's pocketbooks. and this is a big deal. especially to happen right after the election. >host: your reporting is as 90 percent of americans could be affected. guest: it would affect a lot of people a lot of different ways. people in the upper income brackets would face the largest amount of tax increases. because they pay the most income taxes. but everyone would see their payroll tax go up, other individual income tax, taxes on investment in, are at stake. and for corporations and businesses, they are concerned because there are a lot of business tax breaks that affect the way they do business, the way they think about spending money. host: how much has to be tackled before this congress adjourns for the new year? we will see the 113th congress come in. what did have to tackle before we hit the new year? guest: it depends. that is a great question. everyone wants to know. one thing and will have to tackle is the alternative minimum tax. a tax cut was created several years ago in the late 1960's. was originally meant as a tax on wealthy people. you know, every year they have t
not -- what they learned, as i was just suggesting, is that the president's attitude before the election was totally political and security for the reelection. if you remember, april 2011 when they thought they had the proposal on the deficit, went to george washington university to listen to the president gives his counterproposal, he vilified them. and it never stopped doing that for the next year-and-a-half of through the election. the big question is, when we heard from speaker painter, what exactly is going to be the president's opening bid? dagen: four years out, what do you expect to see in terms of social security, medicare, tax cut. >> i think it's going to be very difficult. if the republicans managed to do some of reach, public opinion. and in the election they did have -- romney did have support for his positions on medicare. that was not repudiate. the public does realize at this point that they need to reform those two entitlements. i think they have a basis, at least, for making that argument with president obama and the democrats, but it's going to be difficult. connell:
